My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the White River Inn this past Memorial Day. We enjoyed the fishing and food so much that we returned for Labor Day and brought the entire extended family. The food, accommodations and river views are unmatched. Moose and Tina are the ultimate hosts.

First Class accommodations, Great hosts, Outstanding food. From the time we arrived till we departed, Moose and Tina took care of our every need. The guides where excellent. We caught a lot of fish. We will definitely try to stay there again.

We just got back from a Memorial Day family re-union type of vacation fishing the White River area near Cotter, AR. My family and my mother and father in-law stayed at the White River Inn near Cotter. We have stayed everywhere from the Ritz Carlton at Central Park to camping in a tent along the river.

Steve, Thank you very much for your candid review. Tina and I enjoyed your stay and your wonderful family. On top of that the fish cooperated exceptionally well. Those were some very nice Brown trout you guys caught, and lots of them! Your father and mother in law were such an example of what GREAT parents are like. You guys... More

My son and I celebrated my 65th birthday here. We had a great time fishing and relaxing and being entertained by Moose and Tina! They are super gracious folks and even grilled up a few rainbows for us in lieu of the planned meal. Only problem we had with these two is they tried to feed us to death with... More

Tim, Thank you so very much for the kind words. We so appreciate you taking the time to write about your time with us. Tina and I both enjoyed you guys and hope to get to see you again soon. Hey, how about a retirement party. This time we will have fillets instead of ribeyes, a little portion adjustment. More

Absolutely perfect in every way. Food was fantastic, rooms are very comfortable. Unlike any lodge we have ever stayed. Staying here is like visiting with your best friends. Tina and Moose are wonderful hostesses. Husband had a wonderful time fishing with an excellent guide chosen by Moose. My favorite room has the 2 queen beds since it is kind of... More

My wife and I stayed at the White River Inn in Cotter, AR from October 4-6, 2013. Tina and Moose, the B&B owners, had every fine detail covered. My wife and I have three young children at home, and we haven't had a weekend alone together in quite some time. We both commented that we got two weeks worth of... More

High on a bluff over the White River is this beautiful lodge owned by Moose and Tina Watson. If you want to go on a fishing trip with class dont look any further. We chose the all inclusive 3 day with 2 days fishing. The meals, breakfast and dinner were gourmet and totally delicious. We weren't around for lunch. Dinner... More

White River Inn is an incredible experience. We had a corporate retreat there and had the perfect combination of work and fun. Great facilities, hosts, food and fishing. We caught over 100 fish, and the guides were instructive, kind and entertaining.

The fishing is superior in the Mountain Home, Cotter area of Arkansas, but the accomidations are marginal at best. Most of the lodges are kind of rustic to say the list and usually full of noisy fishermen. We found an exception to this in the White River Inn. Perched high above the White in a beautiful location, the Inn is... More

The hosts Moose and Tina are a couple of the nicest and caring people you will ever meet. They take a genuine interest in who you are and taking care of your needs. They respect your privacy, but are always available if you need them. The lodge itself is a great reflection of the personality of Moose and Tina; it... More
